One of the better Halloween posts is the series "Halloween on a budget" at Loteria Chicana. Want to dress like Oscar De La Hoya? Grab those fishnet stockings and carry a robe in case it gets cold. Or go Old School Chola with a "Pendleton shirt over a white t-shirt or ribbed tank" and "Long, permed hair; tease up your bangs (the higher, the better; use AquaNet liberally)."
Not political enough? Get your partner and go to the party as Antonio & Mirthala. She even has a twist for the ever popular Frida Kahlo; "Bonus accessories: your date as Diego Rivera (or Leon Trotsky), a stuffed monkey on the shoulder, or for a more creepy look try a rod through your torso."
